Cars for Sale

1971 MG Midget:  $3,500 OBO, MG has been stored for the last 9 years and hasn't been driven/started.  About 2 years prior to this, about $9K spent on replacing parts and hoses in the engine bay.  White with some black paneling, with a fairly new soft top.  Rear-end has some damage due to an accident right before it went into storage, and there are some developing rough spots behind the rocker panels.  The interior is original and is showing its age.
